He seems to be sleeping peacefully, but he is not asleep. Rose can only stare at his still face as the thunderbolt of realization goes through her. All hope, will and spirit leave her. Rose closes her eyes. She is so weak, and there just seems to be no reason to even try. And then.. her eyes snap open.

Wait to die, wait to live, wait for an absolution that would never come.”


get to know me meme [3/6] movies  -  titanic (1997)
I got everything I need right here with me. I got air in my lungs, a few blank sheets of paper. I mean, I love waking up in the morning not knowing what’s gonna happen or, who I’m gonna meet, where I’m gonna wind up. Just the other night I was sleeping under a bridge and now here I am on the grandest ship in the world having champagne with you fine people. I figure life’s a gift and I don’t intend on wasting it. You don’t know what hand you’re gonna get dealt next. You learn to take life as it comes at you… to make each day count.

I can still smell the fresh paint. The china had never been used. The sheets had never been slept in. Titanic was called the Ship of Dreams, and it was. It really was.

Where to, Miss? 
To the stars. 

Jack glances across the well deck. At the aft railing of B deck promenade stands Rose in a long creamy green dress. [Close-up on Jack, unable to take his eyes off of her] They are level to each other, about 70 feet apart, with the well deck like a valley between them. She on her promontory, he on his. She looks like a figure in a romantic novel, sad and isolated. Jack is riveted by her… not just by her beauty, but by the sadness in her face. She reminds him of a melancholy princess locked in a tower. Rose turns suddenly and looks right at Jack. Their eyes meet across the space of the well deck, across the gulf between worlds. Then she turns away.
